So this Live For The Music site was pushing Dead shows from Hampton in 1987 and I got sucked in and it was wonderful to see. Me in 1987. At any rate, the memory: in the Terrapin Station between banging out monster chord riffs, Jerry pauses ever so momentarily to nudge his glasses back up his nose. He did this quite often when he played. Makes me smile every time I see it. Ok, back to your day.

Oh, and why was everything played so fast?

Jerry could have been the poster boy for OptiGrab.

Of course they were sued by the government for Consumer Fraud when people developed double vision but that's another story.

Some Dark Hollow...sounds like a typical asshole. Stay away from the cans Mr. Nussbaum. Love that movie.

There is nothing typical about it.

Hey, me too. I've still got my aviators. And now they're retro.

Amazed me how one could look grandfatherly while wearing aviators.

"the “Terrapin Station” that came next was the stuff of legend. It was a shimmering version, and as the song moved into its final instrumental fanfare, the crowd started cheering at full volume for a solid minute. Video later revealed that the cheer was the result of Garcia gleefully mimicking Bob Weir’s power chords movements [around 1:26:00 in the video above]. It was a heartfelt ovation, and everyone felt it. This was arguably was the premier version of “Terrapin” from the Brent and Vince eras of the band. Plus, this version benefits from hearing an audience recording or matrix as opposed the soundboard because of the ecstatic crowd reaction."

It is as described. They were slamming it and not letting go. It is great to see Jerry animated and happy. And almost dancing. There is so much emotion from the crowd. It was such a hopeful couple of years.

The LIG is also pedal to the floor. Not my fave tempo but stunning. An object lesson to use when countering the argument that Jerry was sloppy. Well he was sometimes, but not here. :)

Btw Mayer is not much younger than Jerry is here.
